There's one more thing Creed fans can be thankful for this Thanksgiving. Not only will Creed's new album, Weathered, drop two days prior to turkey day; Scott Stapp, Mark Tremonti and Scott Phillips will be part of the halftime festivities of the annual Dallas Cowboys Thanksgiving Day game.
The group will perform a medley of songs including the new single "My Sacrifice," according to a Wind-Up Records spokesperson, at Texas Stadium on November 22, when America's Team squares off against the Denver Broncos at 4:05 p.m. ET. CBS will broadcast the game.
The band was invited to appear by the Cowboys and the Salvation Army, which traditionally uses the halftime show to kick off its holiday fund-raising drive.
Virgos frontman Brett Hestla, who replaced original bassist Brian Marshall in August 2000 (see "Creed Splits With Bass Player"), will handle bass duties for the halftime show as well as the band's "Saturday Night Live" performance on Saturday.
Approximately three hours before Creed take to the gridiron in Dallas, Enrique Iglesias will perform his hit single "Hero" during halftime of the other Thanksgiving football tradition, the Detroit Lions game, which kicks off at 12:30 p.m. ET from Michigan's Pontiac Silverdome, according to an NFL spokesperson. Gospel singer BeBe Winans will also perform at the event, which boasts a video tribute to New York heroes hosted by actor Matthew Broderick. The Lions-Packers game will be broadcast on Fox.
MTV's parent company, Viacom, also owns CBS.
